—In Tiebele, a village of 63,000 people in southern Burkina Faso, there are just 9 wells (serves 2,700-4,500). That means there are —126-210 more wells needed to serve all members of the village. They also need access to clean sanitation.

In putting my presentation together for World Water Day, 3/22, and learned a startling statistic. 24,000 Burkinabe children die every year from preventable diarrheal diseases!!! This is unacceptable. I am going to fast on 3/22 World Water Day. Please sponsor me in this effort to save these lives.
